Joy of Stats coming soon
The Joy of Stats really is a joy. It will be shown on BBC4, apparently scheduled for December 7. (That date comes from Hans Rosling on twitter, I haven’t found scheduling evidence at the BBC.)
I saw its debut at the Royal Statistical Society on World Statistics Day. Here is a five minute excerpt:
You can see more of Hans Rosling via
Ideas for World Statistics Day. David Spiegelhalter is another person who appears in the film. He is involved with the Understanding Uncertainty website.
The software that is visible in the film is
Gapminder, but it is a safe bet that R is used in several of the projects that are discussed. You can see a bit of a bridge between the two from the talk by Markus Gesmann and Eric Wambach “Google motion charts with R” at LondonR.
